Brookfold Lane Bridge

This is the old railway bridge on Brookfold Lane.

It leads, not surprisingly, to Brookfold Farm, and it is from the top of the bridge that I took my earlier photo of the farm. There is [unless you are a very agile climber] no access from the lane under the bridge onto the footpath that goes over it.

Good morning Gerald, We walked that footpath a few months back. We left our house in Newton and Big Peter led the way, we went under the M67 and came out on the Cricket Pitch in Godley and from there is was to this very bridge and yes... we climbed up using that rail to the left. By the time I got up there I did need a good rest. We followed the trail to a friends home on Cheetham Fold Road... We got a lift back thank god.

I bet that a kid could use the cement "path" on the left and shimmy up in no time! Interesting shot!

Absolutely beautiful, I love the archway under the bridge and all the lush green foilage.

Very nice, I like these old stone structures. I always think about all the people who built is these structures.
